The Grammy-nominated U.K. duo – brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence – gave the lead-off track “BOSS” its first live performance at their self-curated Wild Life Festival in the U.K. Anchored around Howard’s pitched-down vocal, the song is a tour de force of propulsive hi-hats, liquid bass and incendiary dynamics. The intoxicatingly soulful “Feel Like I Do” came together after Guy sampled soul legend Al Green’s classic hit “I’m Still In Love With You” off a batch of vinyl he had purchased. When Disclosure sought approval to use the track, the request reached the ears of The Reverend himself. Green loved it so much that he made an exception to his usual practice and gave Guy the original recording stems to work with.
2. “Feel Like I Do”, 3. “Moog For Love”
